I am a visual artist from Texas currently based in Brooklyn. I attended the Parsons School of Design in NYC for an MFA in Fine Arts and graduated in May 2017. I make art out of found objects from cities. I explore how everyday objects shape our social behavior through history and politics. My aim is to unravel the way we view power, authority, and control by revealing various truths about urban ecosystems and American poverty. Many of my artistic propositions include interventions in public as well as the mediums of painting, drawing, sculpture, video, installation, and performance. Much of the work has an underlying tone of violence that I use to create tension inside of the status quo and challenge my audience to think critically. It has always come naturally to me to collect neglected objects and attempt to recycle them. I choose to recycle an object based on its metaphorical or institutional significance, attempting to give them new life and reclaim them from their socio-political censor. In my process, I embrace, provoke, and appropriate to explore the ways violence and risk have a stake in what it means to be a responsible citizen.
